Taking a half day today, I'm going downtown to buy a present for Henry's third birthday. the only instruction he gave me is "Batman" which I think I can manage.
I started reading Floating Worlds yesterday, a collection of correspondence and art from Edward Gorey. If you're a Gorey fan this is a must have, maybe the best book on him. It's published by Pomegranate and as usual with their books it's beautiful.
Some links of interest:
The Association of Library Services to children ( ALSC) has published a great, comprehensive list of graphic novels for all ages. Very much worth checking out. I'll be using this as a resource for my Monday Comics For Everyone! posts.
also, from the Dark Horse blog, a very interesting initiative to get comics to kids. Looking forward to hearing more about this.
A great New Yorker article on Norton Juster's Phantom Tollbooth.
Some amazing slippers.
And viviane Schwartz drew an awesome cat.
